the region and with the world as china looks at, a sense of harmony, japan would be law, that sense of harmony and how you would achieve it is that their frustration is that the work is not just acquiescing to the notion that they are a rich country, that they are returning, that they're powerful, that they want respect. and they want to see the world kind of step back and give it greater latitude, but doesn't see this. this is what i think whether i personally think we are on a collision course. because when you look at what china's expectations of the world are, you also look at its paranoia, you look at jim, i'd love to hear utah, you're such an expert insider, what's going on in the cyber world. you see something which seems hard to me, despite her best efforts in not one to replace history, that the rise of a great power usually and often leads to messiness. usually and often leads to conflict. let's get some conversation from those of you who are thinking sisley that this is supposed to be a no-nonsense forum on military and secret strategy. i don't want you to predict war, bu

the first thing you do in j.a.g. school, you have a discussion about the difference between the law of war and criminal law. and every military lawyer is taught from the very beginning of their career that law of war detention is designed to neutralize the enemy and to gather intelligence about the enemy. there is a reason that when we capture somebody in a war, we don't give them a trial by jury, we don't give them a lawyer. we have got 3,000 people in american military custody in afghanistan that were captured on the battlefield. and they are held under the law of war because we don't want to let them go back to killing us, and they are not given a lawyer because we're not trying to solve a crime, we're trying to win a war. and here's the question. to my good friend from california, i don't want anyone to believe that under the law of war construct that we have created over the last seven or eight years, that you can be put in jail because you look like a muslim, that you sound like a muslim, that you have got a name muhammad. what happened to japanese american citizens, they were

the detention of united states citizens or lawful resident aliens of the united states or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the united states." now, that was just sort of to say, leave things as they are right now. it preserved the current state of the law, continuing to leave it to the courts to resolve who is right about whether or not the aoumf authorizes the military detention of united states citizens who are apprehended domestically. i believe strongly that the time has come now to end this legal ambiguity and to state clearly once and for all that the aumf or other authorities do not authorize such a definite detention of americans apprehended in the united states. this is without charge or without trial for year after year after year. to accomplish this, we are offering an amendment which affirms the continuing application of the principles behind the nondetention act of 1971. it amends that act to provide clearly in a clear statement that no military authorization allows indefinite detention of united states citizens or green card holders who are apprehended
necessary if the criminal law that it simply operated more effectively. there were errors in aspects of the way the phone hacking investigation was managed in 2006 and in relation to the failure to undertake reader reviews. and there are some problems that need to be fixed with the criminal and civil laws and also in relation to data protection. in particular, exemplary damages should be available for all media talks, including breach of privacy. in the end, however, law enforcement can never be the whole answer. as we've seen, that is because the lawbreaking in this area is typically hidden. but does it comes unaware of what has happened. even if it were possible, and it is certainly not desirable putting a policeman in every room is no sort of answer. in any event, the powers of law enforcement are significantly limited because of the privileges the law provides to the press, including protection of his sources. that is specifically can perform its role in the public interest. what is needed there is a genuinely independent and effective system itself regulated standards for public
things that could rap right now is the house could vote and the president would sign into law legislation that would provide certainty for middle-class families. 98% of american families, and some 97% of small businesses. so it's time for the house to act. secondly, i think we have to take steps to make sure that we're creating jobs at a faster pace, as i mentioned before. i'm introducing legislation today to help middle-class families and -- middle noik families and to boost hiring. it would expand the payroll tax cut from last year for one year and give employers a tax credit for hiring. and i'll be talking about that legislation. now, the payroll cut that we -- tax cut that we put into place last year had a number of benefits. i won't go through all of those today but the joint economic committee, the committee of which i'm the chairman, just put out a report in the last 24 hours, it's a fact sheet that highlights some of the benefits of the payroll tax cut. mr. president, just for the record i would ask consent that the joint economic committee fact sheet on the payroll tax cut dated

of employees he has to less than 50 so he won't be subject to penalties under the 2010 health law. so right now the federal government is keeping him from offering jobs. that hurts the people who need jobs and who would be happy to be on a payroll where they would be putting their own contributions into social security and medicare. increasing taxes means less growth and fewer jobs, and that's not balanced. three years ago i made a pledge to oppose tax increases. i made that pledge to the citizens i serve and to no one else, and i made it because tax increases will hurt them. when jen, the owner of la petite cuisine in new york says the best thing i can do is give her a break from high taxes, i believe her. i ran for congress to help jen and all the small business people like her who are the engines of job creation. i ran for congress to help all the people who need employers like jen to hire them. these good people deserve better than temporary fixes. they deserve a plan that solves our economic problems for the long term. they deserve a plan that goes beyond politics and shows a commitment to
support for this cruel and inhumane sport. very simply, it provides new tools to law enforcement through the animal-fighting spectator prohibition act, so that it cannot only eliminate illegal animal fights but also the activities that may be attendant to them and may be even more harmful to the public welfare. these crimes are a federal matter, and they require a federal response because often an animal-fighting ring involves players from many different states, a county sheriff, or a local prosecutor simply lacks the authority to root out, apprehend, and effectively prosecute such an operation. this bill has the support of many law enforcement organizations. i thank them, including the federal law enforcement officers association, the fraternal order of police, county sheriffs from across the country have signed on as supporters, along with the american veterinary medical association and the humane society of the united states, and i hope that it will have support from this chamber. i thank the president and i yield the floor. and i would ask for the yeas and nays. apparently i can ask

the year. am i right? >> well, the only way to guarantee deals you pass it into law. then it's a lot harder to change them. and my only point is, you know, if we had a game, and every time the term fiscal cliff came up people had to donate a dollar to something, you'd be amazed in the course of a week or two how often this has been repeated like a mantra. i compared to a great essay by tom wolf in which people chanted and made noise in order to get their way. i think we ought to recognize this entire fiscal cliff is an artificial invention of washington, created by people in the congress and the presidency, and it can be broken down by them into a series of steps that can be taken without having to be rushed into one gigantic last-minute, little understood, with no hearings, one vote up or down, i think it's a terrible way to govern the united states. >> greta: well, the sequestration deadline is coming up the 1st of january. what people are saying on capitol hill, the president is saying, congress is saying, it may be scary stuff, but if we go over the fiscal cliff that all sorts of things

way? >> a not smart way to do it is to cut medical research, cut law enforcement. a lot of these proposals over the last couple years by the republicans in the house and senate makes those kinds of cuts. that doesn't make any sense. >> greta: what's a smart way? >> to cut spending like we did in 2011. we came together in the debate about the debt ceiling and rhode islanandreduced spending by alma trillion dollars. the problem right now is that we have an opportunity right now -- the house should do this -- to pass the tax cut that we passed in the senate. you take care of making sure that middle income families have their tax rates in place. you can settle that question as soon as the -- >> greta: let me stop you there. as i understand it, if that's done, let's say that the tax rates only go up on those who make $250,000 or more per year, i'm told that the amount of revenue for that would satisfy paying for the federal government for about eight days. is that abouteright? >> i don't know good that number is accurate. >> greta: let's say 10 days. >> if we do that, if we h

as result of it they created a loan program that got me into college law school. we can't give up on that. this kid from east st. louis illinois and for many others, these loans make a big difference whether it's pell grants or loans, but let's look at this honestly. 25% of the federal aid to education goes to for-profit schools. they have 12% of the students, 25% of the federal aid to education, and more than double the student loan default rate of any other class higher education. there are ways to cut back in spending in education particularly as is wasted on some of the schools that will give us opportunities for resources for real education. which can be part of our future. now let me come to the most painful topic of all, entitlements. social security was included in the simpson-bowles report but i didn't agree with every aspect of it, but i thought that was a sensible approach to breathing life into social security beyond its current longevity. i also like and it to 82 when asking your, and 83 and was told that social security is on its way out in six months, we'll be out of money.

is likely to be over the 1996 law passed by congress called the defensive marriage act which allows only federal benefits for marriages twoen a man and a woman. a few lower courts have recently invalidated that law, saying guy couples deserve the same rights as everybody else. the question the justices could take up on this is whether it's okay for the federal government to try to regulate marriage, which throughout history generally has been regulated by the states. tricky calculation for the court on one hand. nine states in the district of columbia already allow same-sex marriage, including three that just voted in favor of it in the last election. we also know that 41 states have a legal definition of marriage as between a man and a woman. 30 states have constitutional amendments on it. so the question right now really is whether the country is ready for it, deborah. >> joe, really, it comes down to equal protection. and one of the reasons the supreme court is looking so closely at this is because you've got state laws that essentially are invalidating federal laws. and that's why it
